New interactive exhibit opens at Museum of Natural and Cultural History
by Bend Weekly News Sources

(Eugene, Oregon) — A whirling kaleidoscope of light, color and scientific discovery is the heart of an interactive exhibit that will be on display at the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History for four months beginning Wednesday, Jan. 31.

"Light and Color," on loan from the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, features interactive stations where visitors can view amazingly lifelike holograms, split white light into a rainbow of colors, discover the physics behind reflection and uncover the science of periscopes.

The exhibit, which runs through April 29, will be open during regular museum hours—11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for seniors and youths ages 17 and under, and $8 for families (two adults and up to four youths). Admission is free for museum members and for University of Oregon faculty, staff and students.

A special Family Day featuring events for children and adults will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 3. Children who participate can mix their favorite colors, make rainbows, and create a kaleidoscope to take home. Admission for Family Day is $3 for individuals and $5 for families. Museum membership can be purchased for half price at this event.

For more information, call the Museum of Natural and Cultural History, 541-346-3024. The Museum is located in Eugene at 1680 E. 15th Ave.
